NCDOT says that thanks to fantastic weather recently, the NCDOT South Croatan Highway paving project currently underway in Nags Head is moving along well.
The outer, northbound lane of the highway has been paved from just south of Hollowell Street south to East Gray Eagle Street. A temporary lane closure is in place in advance of the active construction up through to approximately milepost marker 11.5 (just north of Hollowell Street).
The innermost southbound lane is open.
Construction is now concentrated on the outermost southbound lane and is progressing south. As of this morning, paving crews were working in front of Jockey’s Ridge. Advance work is occurring near Deering Street, with milling, sweeping, and a road tack application.
Weather permitting, paving operations will continue to work south the remainder of the week to tie in to the newly paved section near Mile Post 14.5.
Temporary lane closures will move southward as the new sections of pavement are completed.
Active construction may temporarily impact access to businesses and residential neighborhoods. If there are alternate routes that can be taken to these locations while active construction is occurring, please use them. Generally, construction related impacts are less than 24 hours in duration.
The Town of Nags Head asks motorists and pedestrians alike, to slow down and use caution when driving in the construction zone areas.
